The claims by HINDRAF for compensations from the British Government for the economic miseries of Indians in Malaysia, can only be the imagination of a man suffering from an extreme form of psychosis. A man, a lawyer, an educated fool who gives false hope to his community and an attempt to gain popularity at the cheapest and shortest possible way.A cheap shot at stardom.
Being a lawyer he should know better how vexed and insurmountable the problem is. In spite of the odds and improbable chance of victory, he has no qualms, to lead his fellow Indians up the garden path and used them to fulfill his own selfish agenda.
Meet the Pied Piper of the Indian community, P.Uthayakumar, the man who is going to put US$2 million in every Indian's pocket.He has brought a class-action suit against Britain for bringing Indians to Malaysia as indentured labourers and exploiting them for 150 years and abandoned them at the mercy of the Malaysian government. Would anybody, let alone a lawyer, attempt such complex,vexatious and impossible to win legal action against what happened 150 years ago.
The grievances are against Britain, why demonstrate on Malaysian soil, why not take his fellow Indians to London and demonstrate in front of Buckingham Palace or No.10 Downing Street, after all each Malaysian Indian will get US$2 million and they can well afford the fare and the stay in London.It would also be a good opportunity for them to meet their former masters.
Did P.Uthayakumar ever asked himself whether the Indians were better off if they were to stay in India with the kind of poverty that existed in India at that time?Did he ever consider the fact that Indians are still coming to work in Malaysia, in spite of what he contended? Was he such a lousy lawyer than he can't earn a decent living and felt discriminated and deprived of the good things in life because his forefathers were indentured labourers then?
To fan racial sentiments is dangerous to the peace and harmony of this country.To take to the street using race as an issue should not be tolerated and must be stopped.I hope the Indian community are not easily fooled by this selfish man.
Is this the work of a depraved mind?
Going to the streets to vent your anger and frustrations are not going to help resolve the problems.It may cause civil unrest. I am getting sick of all this talk of freedom that some Malaysians think they have been deprived of by the government.
The ex-Prime Minister, Tun Mahathir Mohammed should come out and defend the government policy against street demonstrations unless he agrees that Malaysia needs this kind of culture now as things had changed from the time when he was at the helm, when such behaviour was not tolerated at any cost.
Anwar Ibrahim of PKR has given his qualified support for the rally to go on.
